The man, who was immediately detained by Secret Service, jumped the fence onto the North Lawn at 2:45 p.m. One onlooker tweeted the following as it was happening, revealing that the man was draped in an American flag. He seems to hold his hands over his head in victory once the jump was complete. CNN reports that, “…he was carrying an envelope, had on a blue shirt and white pants and was cloaked in an American flag.”
